  • (0:05)  The Interior Of The Cheshire Cat / Warner Bros; Midwest Residential Street, Burbank (Note: This Is The First Floor Interior For The Black White And Read Bookstore And Theater. They Used An Alternate Entrance For The Scene. The Upstairs Was A Set At Their Soundstsge)

  • (0:20)  Rory And Lorelai Looking At The Harvard Gate / UCLA Franklin Murphy Sculpture Garden, 245 Charles E. Young Drive East, Westwood (Note: They Are On The Southeast Part Of The Garden And Of Course The Wall And Gate Were Made For The Episode And Are Not Really There)

  1. Where is this gate actually located if it exists at all. I couldn't find it on the campus in this location.

    1. Send me an e-mail and I will reply to where it was. The gate was fake for the episode.

  2. Haden's Nuts lools like old Mt. Hollywood Drive. About half way recyling/landfill downhill towards the water tank.
    Driving/ext. car scenes seems to be between those two way points (uphill).
